Figure 12.6 Haplotypic structure of the extended MHC region. Analysis of sequence diversity and HLA typing in 361 individuals from four ethnic groups of differing geographic ancestry: YRI (African), CEU (European), CHB (Chinese), and JPT (Japanese) allowed the inferred haplotypic structure across the region to be deduced. Recombination hotspots (triangles) are shown for overall population, with non-redundant haplotypes (lines) shown for each ethnic group.
